Watches

Heavy rain leading to localised flooding is expected in places in KwaZulu-Natal. Severe thunderstorms are also possible over the north-eastern areas of KZN.

The province’s disaster management teams have already been alerted, MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Sipho Hlomuka said in a statement. 

He said severe thunderstorms bringing a possibility of heavy downpours, hail and damaging winds could lead to localised flooding in multiple areas.

Hlomuka urged residents to exercise great caution as inclement weather conditions pose a serious risk to human life.

“Our teams will be monitoring the situation as large parts of our province could potentially be affected by this storm,” he said.

Heavy rain leading to localised flooding is also expected in the eastern areas of the Eastern Cape.
